Get it while it's fresh. I suggest reading the taping notes.
Don't get too crazy with the C/R.

That setlist is not my favorite, especially the first.

But spring/summer 90 was yet another peak for the dead, with some brilliant-brilliant moments.

The sound of the fm broadcasts are compressed but bring back some good memories of dead head hour w gans.

Agreed! But while there's certainly something to love about each and every show on the Spring 1990 tour, this particular night was IMO the weakest of the three in Albany.

for a fresh take on MAMU, check out the 2007-2008 Phil and Friends with Jackie Greene. IMO, Jackie not only sounds great singing, but he also adds a new sound to the guitar, most of the time it was crunchy and distorted, or razor sharp and clean, or, well, the point is he experimented with it and made it so much more compelling than 95% of the Grateful Dead's versions circa 1980-1995 that I HAVE HEARD.

Gotcha all riled up, did I? :)

I think it's all great for it's own reasons. Some songs have their years for different sets of ears, and even different moods between those same sets of ears.

But that show is not nearly as strong as any if the 1970 Port Chester shows. And it certainly can't hold a candle to 6/24/70. Why bother checking it out...

Hey, there is someone out there! Damn the forum's been quiet.

Smartass. Come on. Feb.'71 Port Chester is boring. Wheel going 'round and 'round, sounds like Wheel is falling off. Where's Micky? (collective scratching of butt).
I can't remember winter of '71 too much, so maybe we are gonna have some more fun!

I'm feeling a '91 post comin' on.

I love the '90s! And the '80s for that matter, damn it! So much to hear, so many great songs and jams that came after the early '70s.

Cliff, don't you get sick of hearing the same tunes over and over and over and over?

Guess none of us do, do we, or we wouldn't be here ...

Cliff: Hmmm. What will it be today? A '70 MAMU or a '72 MAMU?

IceNine: Hmmmm. What will it be today? A '70 MAMU or an '89 MAMU?

Repeat as appropriate with other tunes :-)

Oh, that's on tomorrow's menu. But IceNine is picking between that and a 91, while Cliff ... well, his menu also has an 80 on it, but I don't think he'll take it.

I remember when I was first getting into the Dead back in the mid-80s and didn't know much about the repertoire or songs selections, I said to my then girlfriend "They could play Me & My Uncle every night and I would be happy"... Little did I know how close I was to my wish coming true.
